Resistance

I want you to write an essay of no less than 500-words linking Adorono and Horkheimer’s “Culture Industry,” with the messages of resistance seen in the fictional texts this week. Can popular culture be mobilized in bringing about not only social resistance, but also the construction of historical alternatives. In other words, can a truly liberatory historical alternative stem from the conditions it wishes to surpass (think back to Jameson’s text in the beginning)? Answer this not only using the content of the fictional texts in mind, but how they were produced, marketed, and distributed to their audiences by capitalist institutions. This essay is to be at least 500-words. Not using specific examples from the texts or MLA in-text and end-of-text citations will result in deducted points.

You must use these readings in the paper. Also please only make it a little more than 500 words please. just read the instructions and use the 2 texts to link everything to “The culture Industry” reading

Max horkheimer and Theodor Adorno, “The Culture Industry”

Penny Rimbaud, “Tune in, Tune Out, Cop Out: The Commodification of Revolution”

Cory Doctorow, “Little Brother”
